Searching via Administrative Shares

Top  Previous  Next


When searching via administrative shares FileLocator Network connects to the administrative shares on each computer, e.g. C$, D$ etc. and retrieves all the necessary data to perform the search processing locally, i.e. on the computer running FileLocator Network (see illustration below).



The main advantages of searching via administrative shares are that it works on any computer that supports administrative shares, regardless of operating system, and that no code is run on the remote computer. However, because no code is run on the remote computer it does mean that all searched data needs to be retrieved over the network to the computer running FileLocator Network, thereby limiting the possibilities of parallel searching.
